Successful Tethered Caps Inspection

On 2nd July 2019, the EU published a regulation to reduce plastic waste that involves a regulation with regard to closures on plastic beverage bottles: Plastic closures must remain attached to the bottles from July 2024 at the latest. This presents extensive challenges to the industry. However, the high quality of your plastic closure production can be guaranteed.

INTRAVIS' CapWatcher Q-Line is already prepared for the new EU regulation since the system comprises special tethered cap inspection features.
